Dear Future Family,

If we keep doing business as usual, using fossil fuels, eating beef, turning our heads away from this giant elephant in the room, then we are in for one scary ride. I’ve watched “Before the Flood” just last night, it’s an eye-opener, and I’ve always believed in climate change, now more than ever.

I feel empowered because I am informed on just how alarming this could get. 400 billion tons of co2 emissions have been dumped into our atmosphere, and it’s all because of us. It’s surreal and depressing, but there are personal steps to help. I want to cut out beef from my diet. My husband and I just got a 7 kW solar system for our home. Once my gas car kicks the can, I’m switching to a pure electric vehicle.

Also, I’m writing this letter, because, from the bottom of my heart, I’m unsure of the future. We have the power right now to take action.

I wish nothing but the best for our entire humanity,

Sincerely,

Present Me
